in reply to = rather than =~ ?

Good catch!

That should have been =~! Where were you when that was being tech reviewed? Or where was my brain when I was typing that?

Thanks... I'll add it as an errata.

    This note might confuse newbies, so I thought just add a comment.

    "That should have been =~!"

    What merly said is that, that was a typo, and not what he wanted. (As you can see, he is the owner of that web page.)

    But as a Perl statement, it is absolutely valid, and jweed has already given a full explanation.

    Goodness. And all this time I thought you had /meant/ it that way.

[Perl300]: any suggestion on which one might be secure and simplest. I am not doing anything complex, just check some conditions from DB tables and send email to myself (same domain) if conditions are met
[1nickt]: read the doc of the suggestions I just gave
[1nickt]: A lot depends on whether you are sending mail from your local box or using a remote server
[hippo]: Secure in what sense?
[Perl300]: I am sending from remote server
[1nickt]: Then see Email::Sender:: Transport::SMTP
[Perl300]: secure in sense it should not cause any security concerns, create some loop holes.... I don't know much about it but don't want to cause any problem for security guys here
[Perl300]: I used sendmail before for a few times but read that is causes some security issues so trying something better/secure this time
[1nickt]: If you use a remote SMTP server there should be no local security issues. Your mail server probably wants an encrypted connection, so the message contents cannot be stolen.
[jedikaiti]: Greetings, Salutations, and all that Jazz
